Bessemer, AL |
This doctor thinks all other doctors must followed his method and not MacDonald method. A widely used method and in fact the only method recommended for diagnosing MS patients. He doesn't care if you have a diagnosis. He just can't face the fact I have a diagnosis for MS by two different doctors. One was a second opinion. Dr. Tinker is in total denial that he that I have a diagnosis for MS. He insists on telling me you have no diagnosis. Should I believe a doctor who doesn't follow method

My 1st visit was in 2012, I was depressed & fearful of the results of my MRIs. Dr. Rinker was extremely kind & compassionate. Performed my lumbar puncture with minimal discomfort. Subsequent appointments were informative & caring. If I'm having symptoms of a relapse or having problems I utilize email communication via the UAB Portal . Dr. Rinker or his staff respond quickly.
